Sunday, April 23, 2017

[NEW YORK, NY ] The first ever, national study on evangelization and outreach in Orthodox parishes in the United States has been released by the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the USA. The report "Go and Make Disciples: Evangelization and Outreach in US Orthodox Parishes" explores the practices and strategies developed by some Orthodox parishes that can be viewed as "exemplary" in their missionary and outreach efforts. Examples of what the readers will find in the report include: The "secrets" of being a parish that attracts and welcomes new members; Eight good practices of welcoming first-time visitors and inquirers about the Faith; How do "exemplary" parishes achieve a high degree of involvement of their members in parish life; Four distinct features of religious education in the "exemplary" parishes;and Six "lessons" that Church leadership (bishops) can learn from the "exemplary" parishes.

Episode 124: We're All Broken. April 13,  2017

We all struggle with something. We're all broken. Every Holy Thursday, we see Christ on the Cross. We come face-to-face with our own brokenness, and the way Christ joins us in our pain. He brings light out of darkness, and life out of death.

CELEBRATING PASCHA
 

St Athanasius the Great: Celebrating the Paschal Feast

Sunday, April 02, 2017

Brethren, how fine a thing it is to move from festival to festival, from prayer to prayer, from holy day to holy day. The time is now at hand when we enter on a new beginning: the proclamation of the blessed Passover, in which the Lord was sacrificed. We feed as on the food of life, we constantly refresh our souls with his precious blood, as from a fountain. Yet we are always thirsting, burning to be satisfied. But he himself is present for those who thirst and in his goodness invites them to the feast day. Our Savior repeats his words: If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink.

He quenched the thirst not only of those who came to him then. Whenever anyone seeks him he is freely admitted to the presence of the Saviour. The grace of the feast is not restricted to one occasion. Its rays of glory never set. It is always at hand to enlighten the mind of those who desire it. Its power is always there for those whose minds have been enlightened and who meditate day and night on the holy Scriptures, like the one who is called blessed in the holy psalm: Blessed is the man who has not followed the counsel of the wicked Read more...

On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 143: An Inviting Church (4/23/17)

Sunday, April 23, 2017

“Come and See.” (John 1:39 RSV)

As Orthodox, we have one of the greatest gifts that God can bestow upon us, our Orthodox faith. As members of the body of Christ, we are commanded to use our gifts to further our journey to Theosis as well as using those gifts to help and support other members of the body of Christ on their journey. This includes reaching out to those who have yet to begin their journey or have become “stuck in a rut.”

Are you an inviting parish? Do you set an environment that will make visitors feel welcome and desire to return? Do you have an invitational culture in your parishes? If not, why not? Read more...
